Factors related to mental and physical health, and co-occurring with PC, were evaluated using multiple regression.
Results: Controlling for age and education, PC women reported poorer total perceived mental health (PMH) (46.3 ± .9 vs. 50.7 ± .9, p Conclusions: PC use is a marker for poor health after 10 years. Mediators of these relationships (BMI, stressful life events and current tobacco use) should be considered when designing interventions to promote health.
